probably will appeal that opinion or that decision by the judge in san francisco. theow that sheas ruling so ppken. second circuit addressed the same issue and found that the statutebviated a constitutional issue. so it has been addressed elsewhere. my hope and expectation is that it is addressed either on appeal or by new legislation. it is an essential tool. >> how essential? what would be the circumstances if her ruling were upheld and became the law of the land? would dry up a substantial number of our counterterrorism investigations and espionage, which rely on national security letters for not the substance of conversations but the fact of a conversation having taken place between two individuals, it would dry up our ability to get that information and would severely hamper our ability to undertake those counter- terrorism or espionage investigations. also in the cyber arena, where ,ou have countries like china if we're not able to utilize national-security letters, it would impact our ability to undertake investigations in that arena as well. was picked upthat ghraib,backing, abu l

outgunned. in the nine years i was mayor of san francisco we started out with police issue being a .38 caliber revolver. we have seen that escalate. we have seen shotguns be removed from squad cars and replaced with assault weapons. why? because of an increasingly armed criminal element that police often have to go up against. i watched as the los angeles police department had to break in to a gun store to take weapons to be able to counter what was going up against them following a robbery in los angeles. i don't know why anyone would object to drying up the supply of these weapons over time. they are not good hunting weapons. many states have limits on the number of bullets that can be on a clip. and who's going to respect a hunter with a 30-round clip and an assault weapon going after a deer? i certainly am not one that would. so the intention of this is to dry up the supply over time. while homicides in general are down in this country, mass killings are not. and the fact is that these assault weapons have a great attraction for grievance killers, the people that go into law office

at the university of california san francisco medical school, where we analyze the medical, social, and economic costs of each claim. the tricare cost, this part of the new and updated analysis. we came up with the number is $3 trillion because no matter which way you counted, the minimum you could get was $3 trillion. we did not include financial interest cost in that. economic included costs in that amount, we could have called it four or $5 trillion. got in trouble with our publisher calling it the $5 trillion war and people would be asking for the wrong book. [laughter] the minimum that could cause is $4 trillion. many of our costs were accurate. some of the tricare costs have grown a lot faster than we predicted. the brown cost of more study is putting it at $6 trillion. war study. at a minimum it is at least a trillion higher. in terms of what to do about it, i have a number of proposals. on the veterans issue, which is where i have spent a lot of my time, the first major recommendation is that we should be appropriating money into a veterans' trust fund at the time we go to war. right now

beautiful place in san francisco, the city of st. francis, we knew it was inevitable that all of this would happen. it was inconceivable to others that it would. and it was our job to use whatever influence we could have to shorten the distance between the inevitable and inconceivable. and i think that is what is happening at the court because of many people's courage, especially those directly and personally affected. yesterday, i had gavin newsom as one of our attendees, people who have been working on this. jim parnell, the first openly gay ambassador, all of the san franciscans who have been in public service who have fought the fight. so it's pretty exciting. i feel pretty good. what i told you about healthcare 63, but we won. >> you got it right. >> i got it right.

. it is not an abstract pie in the sky. i think if anyone reads the history of it and how she became the mayor of san francisco would understand. senator blumenthal i remember your voice when you were about to go meet the families. we devoted our first hearing back in january. for years, we've asked this committee and we've asked democrats and republicans to come together as part of an a collective effort to find solutions to ensure that no families no community be made to endure the tragedies of the past two years whether it is in an elementary school in connecticut, a movie theater in colorado, in a place of worship in wisconsin or in front of a shopping mall in arizona. after three hearings, four markup sessions we've completed our work. i will now work with the majority leaders to see how he intended to proceed. we have worked to try to provide law enforcement with stronger tools against illegal gun trafficking and to close that loophole. we've proposed closing loopholes in our background check system for firearm purchases. others have proposed restrictions on military-sized weapons and the size

. why in the world we would spend our tax dollars on steel that's manufactured in china to build the san francisco/oakland bay bridge, 23 million tons of steel, maybe three million to six million -- 3,000 to 6,000 jobs in china, not in the united states, american tax money spent. and it goes on and on. we need a strong make it in america, buy it in america policy so that our tax money is spent on american-made products and services, not on foreign-made. now if you want to spend your own money out there, fine, buy whatever you want to buy. but if you're going to spend american taxpayer money, then we should spend that money on american-made equipment. and that is precisely the policy that we're offering here in the united states as we move our infrastructure programs forward. and as we move forward with our energy development, our solar and our wind and other advanced energy systems, use our tax money to build american manufacturing once again here in our nation. so manufacturing matters and we will make it in america when once again it is made in america. very fundamental. these are the
